Sportshall Athletics

28th February 2017

Following on from the success of our Sportshall Athletics team in the Witney partnership event, The Batt boys and girls headed off to Carterton Community College to compete against the best teams from West Oxfordshire. With six other teams in attendance, The Batt knew they’d have to be on top form to progress.

With the six field events taking place first, our team stepped up to take part in a variety of throws, jumps and a speed bounce event. With six first place positions out of the twelve that the boys and girls competed in, including some personal best achievements, The Batt held a commanding 30 point lead over the rest of the teams at the halfway point.

The six track events followed, consisting of many relay based runs and various obstacle races. Team Batt kept their focus throughout these races to take a highly impressive ten wins out of twelve, coming in second place in the other two.

All this lead to the team winning the West Oxfordshire Sportshall Athletics event for the second consecutive year! They now progress through to the county finals to be held in Oxford on April 4th.

Huge congratulations to all involved for such a great achievement!
